a little too much of that freedom recently. the obama administration meanwhile is giving states another month to decide what role if anything they'll play in carrying out the new health care law. states have been required to declare intentions by today, but they'll have until december 14th. republican governors have requested more time and the associated press reports that 16 states are still mulling decisions. and the "wall street journal" report it is that the office of the controller of the currency will formally serve jcht p morgan chase with actions regarding money laundering. on the cc expected to allege weakness in the antimony laundering systems. andrew, i'm going to take the opposite side of you on the whole delta thing. it's so obvious to take that side to say -- >> let's get the article here. >> what if it's been proven that -- >> let help set it up. >> what if it's proven that age has very little to do -- >> here it is. delta flies new routes to profits older jets. the idea is hear one of the reasons they're making as much money as they are is because they're not buying new

confirmed as secretary of state. does this present a problem? do you think they will go forward with it? she was widely considered to be the top possibility? >> it's one of the bigger early fights that obama can face but it could take a step back, not just looking at what happened in benghazi but more broadly at all of libya. what we did going in there. we know rice was one of the major driving forces who said we need to go and drive out gadhafi. if some of the nation building starts to turn ugly over the next year which tends to happen how does that reflect on susan rice's push to get us in there. that's one issue that could come up. >> is this a fight the white house wants to have, major? is john kerry looking like the better candidate now? >> well, that's for the administration to decide and they're getting early signals from republicans that if the president wants to go down this road and nominate ambassador rice, that it's going to be a fight and it's going to be game on and it will take on a very partisan and divided tone, very rapidly, whether the administration wants to do that and m

't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in th
of that tragedy. now president obama has the gall to float the name as possible of secretary of state the name of the person who is the actual vehicle used to misinform the american people during this crisis. bill: now we move to today. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live on the hill. good morning there. what do we expect to get from general petraeus today behind closed doors now, catherine. >> reporter: thank you, bill. the former cia director arrived here on capitol hill an hour and 20 minutes ago and a source close to the general told fox news the expectation he will tell the house intelligence and senate intelligence committees he too believed it was terrorism within 20 four hours of the attack. active link to al qaeda and ansar al-sharia to wanted to establish a islamic state in eastern libya. the source told fox news they expect the general to bring with him the original talking points put together by the cia. those talking points had input from other intelligence agencies as well as the office of the director of national intelligence and that petraeus apparently did
belonging to a dynasty. how about that? >>> up next, the former cia director, david petraeus, put state secrets in peril. the president said there's no evidence, but senior senators accuse obama of a possible benghazi cover-up. we'll get right to that also. >>> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >>> we have this fiscal cliff staring us in the face. >> i don't think this country can tolerate another driving close to the precipice dynamic. >> most i know don't want to work with the government. >> don't even get close to the fiscal cliff. >> in rising above, we've got to find a way to move forward. >> i have confidence the fiscal cliff will be dealt with. >> what i'll tell the president is we're here to help. >> we have another pin that you could give to president obama. >> for your rise above pin, go to cnbc.com. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent re

served in the illinois state senate with president obama. fed me give you to respond to what you have heard to chris van hollen on the notion of taxes and republicans being prepared to extend the bush tax cuts for those earning less than $250 a year to attack there is ambiguity on the democratic side of the aisle. there is something that chris did not say and that we have not heard from the president. the ambiguity is -- who is risk that there is a 250 description. there is a 500 description. there has not been a clear discussion on the impact of the past two entities. i represent suburban chicago and many other folks across both sides of the aisle. i represent entities that are organized and very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact of pass-throughs as relates to these higher rates. the second thing is the -- to notice what we have not heard from the white house? but we have not heard from the white house is a discussion of the other component that is -- where are the spending cuts and the savings? there has been a lot of discussion about that. there has
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
states and there's something kind of breathtaking about that. if steve is right and if, you know, obama care, the kind of seat of obama care is his legacy, what's doubly interesting there is how accidental the birth of the kind of proto obama care, romney care in massachusetts was. what happened there was a buddy of his tom, the founder of staples, you know, kind of casually mentioned to mitt when he was coming in as governor that, you know, some doctors over at mass general were having trouble dealing with their uninsured and there wasn't any kind of internal, you know, deep ideological commitment to making this happen. >> very much sort of the accidental tourist. >> totally. >> in terms of politics. we have to go. the other thing we didn't talk about, jonathan, mitt romney sort of an ac crow nistic 1950s character in an america proven to be a very very different place than the 1950sing and '60s, a browner, more female, younger and more fired up. >> and a little more progressive. the problem mitt romney had, he brought confidence or he thought he did, but he was rutterless. the compete
. >> also a member of the ways and means committee, certain element state senate with president obama, so you have a history there as well. first of all let me get you to respond to what you heard from chris van hollen, particularly on issues of taxes and this notion of ad hominem republicans should be prepared to extend the bush tax cuts for those earning less than $250,000 a year. >> well, i think there's ambiguity on the democratic side of the aisle, and then there's something that chris didn't say and that we haven't heard from the president's of ambiguity is who is rich? there's 250 description, 500, a million, a great deal of ambiguity. there's not been a clear discussion on impact of the past through entities for example, to i represent suburban chicago and many other folks across both sides of the aisle, represent entities that are organized as pastors, and very little discussion beyond sort of the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact on pastors as relates to these high rates. the second thing is, did you notice really what we haven't heard from the white house? what we haven't h
states, the u.s. has also been targeting al qaeda. and in fact in december of 2009 the obama administration opened their campaign of bombing attacks against what they believed to be al qaeda targets in yemen. so on december 14, 2009, this is about -- obviously about 11 days before the christmas day attack, secretary of state clinton added al qaeda in the arabian peninsula to the terrorist list, named them an official terrorist organization, and then three days later the u.s. carried out its first attack. so it was in southern yemen and ibrahim mentioned this in his remarks. it was on a village and what the u.s. thought was that there was an al qaeda training camp and they knew some of the operatives who were there and so they had u.s. naval ships off the coast of yemen that fired missiles equipped with cluster bombs into what they believed to be a al qaeda training camp. unfortunately for the u.s., this turned out to be a bedouin village in which several or a few al qaeda members were hiding. there were 55 casualties during the first round i have a tax. so this happened sort
obama, what do you want, president obama won the popular vote, three and a half million. he won the electoral college by 126-vote margin. that's pretty substantial. he won eight out of nine battleground states. only lost north carolina by less than 100,000 votes. democrats picked up, held on to the senate and everybody said they were going to lose it. not only held on to the senate, picture up two seats in the senate and democrats picture up eight to ten seats -- some seats are still not called yet. in the house of representatives. so it was a romp for democrats. they didn't take back control of the house. but there's no doubt about it. the american people rejected romney and ryan. all right. talk about good democratic members of the congress, back in town barbara lee from california is and she'll be here today. so will donna edwards from the state of maryland and of course, eliot spitzer host of "viewpoint" on current tv joins us as he does every wednesday morning. and here's the deal. here's the question. one fin
. >> it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. obama care is the law of the land. >> it's happening it, and there's nothing they can do about it. right now, states are deciding how to implement a key part of the law. states can either set up exchanges for people to buy insurance or let the federal government do it for them. you think that choice would be easy for republican governors, given how much they hate the federal government. >> we don't like when the federal government comes and shoves things down our throat. >> sadly, the hardest part of my job continues to be this federal government. >> i mean all the states are actually under assault by this federal government. they are under assault by this federal government. >> so dwhae these governors decide? rick perry and his buddies are letting the feds set up their exchanges. they don't want the federal government to have any control over health care. so now they're letting the federal government have more control over health care. these republican politicians have tied themselves into knots trying to deal with the law
this fight put president obama in? >> well, look, president obama's larger foreign policy goal is to both secure a peace deal in the region but also improve the united states' relations with the islamic world. and the fact that you have this new government, after the arab spring, which has been the administration has seen as a success overthrowing autocrats who have been somewhat friendly like hosni mubarak, you have egypt embracing hamas, putting the united states at odds with its ally in the region israel, it makes it difficult. so every statement that we've seen from the white house about his consultations whether it's with mohamed mursi from egypt or benjamin netanyahu has the word, as you just mentioned, deescalate. they want this to be tamped down, and it is probably in israel's interest to do that, to avoid further inflaming the region. but, hamas seems to think that they would benefit from prolonging and es cal eighting the conflict. >> okay. >> i want to get your take on former cia director david petraeus appearing before the house and senate intelligence committee. it seems each
of representatives, president obama won the electoral vote. pretty solid. he won the popular vote, which is decisive. he won eight out of nine of the battleground states that we were told they were so close, they could have gone to mitt romney. host: where the polls wrong? what is going on? -- were the polls wrong? what is going on? guest: every night on the news, what led the news. -- what led the news? the latest gallup poll. they have not been right since they were wrong in 1946. i must say, nate got it right on the blog. host: good morning. caller: i noticed throughout the campaigning that republican politicians have like complete contempt for the republican voter. mitt romney went to ohio and told a horrible, embarrassing lie. that tells me that they feel the republican voter is someone to be led by the nose, who can be manipulated, who can be fooled. is that what mitt romney did so poorly? host: thank you. guest: i do not think they were taking the republican voters for granted. i think they failed to reach beyond the republican base, the way i saw it. what mitt romney and paul ryan were doing
students. let's solve this. >>> in the spotlight tonight president obama is not going to let republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham stop him from nominating whoever he thinks is the best candidate to be his next secretary of state. >>> if you nominate susan rice, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, th
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
zelig. austin goolsbee, former chairman of the council of economic investors under president obama, and michael boskin, who spoke last night as chief economic advisor for george h. w. bush. we have a whole world to spend. i want to start out with the united states. very few people in this room understand the president as well as us. many are asking -- what is going to come? i would like to look through the fiscal cliff and ask you to describe for us how you see the budget negotiations playing out over the next six months. >> it feels to me like they always had a deal last year. the principal bottleneck was not that the president was on willing to offer cuts. it was that there was a group of republicans in the house who would not go for the revenue. i think that is still the bottle neck now. you probably saw the article this morning from hubbard. i take from this collection some optimism of 2013 and the way that might play out, whether we go or do not go over the fiscal cliff, we get to some space where if they did $1 trillion in cuts and reforms it was $1 trillion on discretionary,
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
barack obama. [applause] millions of women's votes to help us select a record number of people to the congress of the united states. understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world. the first time that a parliamentary body would have a party with a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. yesterday, we did not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me, we don't have the gavel. [laughter] [laughter] we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have a gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think that our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there was about 23 members of congress who women out of 435. just think about that. twelve democrats and 11 republicans, something like that. today, we have over 60 house democr
they have received subpoenas from the new york state general. coned and the long island power authority say they are cooperating into their responses to the storm. >> president obama addressing the national fiscal cliff during his news conference at the white house. the president says he is confident an agreement can be reached that would avoid automatic tax hikes and spending cuts. he called for comprehensive deal but that he is not going to budge on the wealthiest 2%. john boehner thinks that approach is flawed. >>> president obama did say he is open to compromise and new ideas. wall street didn't like what it heard from the president yesterday. the dow dropped 185 points. the s&p fell 19 and nasdaq fell 37. >> detectives released a video they want you to see. people that they say are persons of interest in a robbery and shooting that happened last friday morning. the video shows a woman and three men at an unidentified shoe store. police say the group is wanted for questioning in that case. and one man is dead and a sheriff's deputy is on administrative leave. this happened last night at
. so president obama and house republicans are gearing up for negotiations on a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. of course the president even stating during yesterday's press conference that he is open to new ideas. >> i'm open to compromise and i'm open to new ideas. and i've been encouraged the past week republican and republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of the arithmetic if we're going to be serious about reducing the deficit. lori: joining me, david wessel, economics editor for "the wall street journal" he wrote a piece to proposals about letting the bush tax cuts expire. welcome to you. >> good to be with you. lori: the president says he is willing to compromise but everyone is skeptical. we know he won't back down without at least raising taxes on wealthier americans, right? >> right. well, everybody is playing nice now. everybody is sounding very reasonable. everybody is willing to compromise without violating their principles. this is the kind of opening act of what will be a probably really intense negotiations and both t
kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops and sunshine. congratulation on 8,760 hours in that seat and good luck on the next 8,760 hours. >> tha
susan rice forward to be secretary of state. megyn: he said if i want to nominate her, i will. president obama scheduled to meet with business leaders. busy day at the white house, to talk about budget cuts and tax hikes. it's part of his plan to help avoid the fiscal cliff. but we got reports on two different studies, one by ernst and young and the conscious at budget office that predicted raising tax rates even on the wealthy will hurt the economy. charles payne and simon constable. author of the the "wall street journal" guide to the 50 economic indicators that matter. charlesing with who put that together, a bunch of rich people who don't want to get taxed? >> realistically. i think the question is, a lot of people will resign themselves to the fact that taxes will go up. but the question is how do you define rich. this is where i have a problem. $250,000 is not real definition of rich and that's not where the average american family who gets to that point should be punished for the work they put in. the president continues to dismiss small businesses saying only 3% are going to be h
, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestments in the stock market. >> he later clarified his comments at a news conference. >> yes, we were working on this budget. we're going to need a lot of prayer on that. i always believe in prayer. i believe in prayer when go to church back home and if a buddhist monk is wishing me well, i'll take whatever good vibes he can give me to try to deal with some in his back home. i'm confident that we can get our fiscal situation dealt with. >> over the weekend president obama spoke with five influential business leaders, including warren buffett and apple's tim cook to get their take on a solution for a long-term deficit reduction plan. >> steve ratner, what's it looking like? the "wall street journal" story talking about a lot o
obama with 55% of the vote. 184 women ran for congressional office this year, and 40% of the u.s. population now has at least one woman senator. there is no longer an all-male state legislature anywhere in the country. nowhere. new hampshire, which is also my home away from home, now has an all women congressional delegation. and a woman governor, as well as a female statehouse and state senate leader. they are not both democrats, that's ok. they are still women. we are moving in the right direction. and this is my favorite, on the 113th congress, gavels in in january, it will be an all-time high of 20 women senators and 81 women in the house of representatives. [applause] >> this is awesome. now, that is particularly gratifying given that we came off -- i remember being on a -- in a similar discussion just two years ago just lamenting and agonizing that we had dropped the number of women in congress for the first time since 1982 after the 2010 elections. some of us thought, oh, my gosh, how did we lose the momentum? how are we going to get it back? it's so critical. there was
of votes. [applause] millions of women's votes that it took to reelect president barack obama. [applause] millions of women's votes that helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. we saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time a parliamentary body would have a party who had a majority of women and minorities. we are very proud of that. we said yesterday, we did not have majority but we have the gavel. excuse me -- but we do not have the gavel.

president obama defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was criticized for her remarks immediately following this attack. she is reportedly in contention to succeed hillary clinton as our secretary of state, take a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say the least. congress has a constitutional responsibility under our system of checks and balances to consider any nominations to an executive branch position, like secretary of state. the president knows that. i us
to help him. president obama's committed to comprehensive immigration reform. i looked the other day, 90% of hispanics have parents or grandparents who immigrated to the united states from another country. that's why the republicans should be afraid. ther they should help us -- >> i don't think they have to be afraid. >> mitt romney talked about self-deportation, that turned off a lot of folks out there. >> i think self-deportation is what president obama did when he cratered the economy and kept it struggling. no jobs for people to come here to get. >> you can't exactly blame the president -- he inherited a pretty bad economy. >> he did. but he's also deported more illegal aliens than any president in american history. >> executive order came back. >> but democrats are winning the hispanic vote, why? it's not just tone. it's because of the approach you take. this is a country for everybody. not one group or another group. but this is a country for everybody. that's who the republican party has always been. we just need to remember who we are. >> didn't romney 'em base sb-1070? that also
from wealthier states. tracy: rich edson down in d.c., thank you very much. as rich mentions all the ceos walking in. president obama meeting with ceo's today. he will be in new york tomorrow surveying the damage. i think he is in for a rude awakening. he has his congressional meeting on friday as well. let's talk what happened with the stock market. about 40 minutes in, the market starts to fall. we hit a session low of 124 on the dow. sure enough he says, i'm going to take one last question. we see the market tick up, start moving back up a little it about. let's get to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. interesting, right, nicole? that the second he said i will take one more we start to see it retreat. >> it was interesting, that the market really has been to the downside. when you ask any trader on wall street why we're down, whether 70, 90. today we were as low as become 125 points why are we down? we are down when you walk this floor because everybody is worried about the fiscal cliff. and i know that the president now is talking about he is open
that are aimed at the big multinationals' knowledge, making them partner with chinese state owned enterprise. and they are supposed to be a sosh a absorb and master that technology and compete overseas. >> do you think the obama administration will be emboldened to actually do something on the trade front only because they haven't -- during the election, that was not part of their argument, whereas becky was saying, romney was pushing the china issue on other things, as well. >> romney had harder rhetoric, but obama shifted in the middle of his term. he started out very soft on china, trying to be friendly, and china gave him nothing. so about halfway through his term, they started doing a lot stronger trade actions, filing some wto cases. and i think you'll see more and more of that. the u.s. chamber, everybody in washington is kind of geared up. >> what about all the corruption reports in china. >> it's very serious. because it used to be don't ask don't tell, you can gather assets, but don't be it too public about it. >> will it have an impact on the leadership today? >> yes. these guys a

[laughter] we don't have the -- we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women out of 45. just think of that. 11 -- 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like t
